This recipe for braised carrots makes the perfect side dish for a holiday roast or a weeknight family dinner. The earthy sweetness of the carrots is balanced by the salty sharpness of capers. Garlic and parsley bring the dish together but keep a relatively low profile, here. This preparation is a great alternative to maple carrots: less sweet, more dimensional, and so very handsome sidled up to a pot roast or a mound of buttery mashed potatoes. But you needn't wait for a big occasion. Try these carrots once and you'll likely add them to your root repertoire all year-round.
